A Rising Tide of Institutional Investors and Global Adoption

On Wednesday, the senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone said that he believes BTC may touch the $50k handle soon. “About $30,000 is the threshold supported by a rising tide of institutional investors and global adoption as a store-of-value,†McGlone stressed. “Our graphic depicts the milestone of the 20-week moving average crossing above $20,000, which we view as an extreme downside level in the event of a risk-off swoon akin to 1Q20.â€

McGlone further added:

Upcoming CME Futures Launch Boosts Ethereum Price

Additionally, crypto proponents and industry execs also believe ethereum (ETH) is headed for higher numbers. Paolo Ardoino, the CTO of Bitfinex recently discussed the rising ETH value in an investor’s note sent to news.Bitcoin.com. “Ethereum is seemingly ‘going to the moon as it reaches another all-time high above $US1,700,†Ardoino wrote.

“There are lots of moving parts to the second-biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. Skeptics may focus on the challenges that it faces. But hackers and coders love to solve problems. Ethereum was designed to be a currency to fuel an ecosystem of applications and we are still at the very beginning of this journey. Meanwhile, the coming CME Futures launch represents another milestone towards crypto becoming an established asset class,†the Bitfinex CTO concluded.
